Epidemiology Elective Program

The Epidemiology Elective Program (EEP) introduces medical and veterinary students to applied epidemiology, public health, and global health through hands-on experience and mentorship by CDC subject matter experts. This program offers 6- or 8-week rotations based at CDC sites, other federal sites, and state, Tribal, local, and territorial health departments.

EEP has partnered with the CDC Foundation to provide several  awards annually to EEP graduates who have a demonstrated commitment to public health, global health, or One Health through their EEP assignments.
